Just about 9km from the Melbourne CBD, Williamstown is surrounded by water on three sides. It makes an ideal weekend stroll alongside the water and through The Strand.
Sauntering The Strand in Williamstown
Starting from the Gem Pier right in the centre of Williamstown, we can visit the HMAS Castlemaine, one of the sixty vessels of its kind built in the dock visible right across the marina and that served during WW II.
Moving along the shore, we reach The Strand. We saunter along it, with stunning views of the marina and the skyline of Melbourne on the horizon. A peaceful and beautiful place to walk on a sunny Autumn afternoon.
